Leamington Editorial 24th Jan, 2023   0

THE LINE-Up for a celebration of all things creative in Warwick district has been revealed.

Speakers, workshops, and demonstrations will all take place as part of Spark:Ignite, which returns for a fourth year at the Royal Spa Centre on Wednesday February 15 from 9am to 4pm.

The annual symposium for the creative sector is designed to bring together and promote the growth of the arts and digital industries across Warwick district.

And the event will be structured around five core themes – voice, placemaking, pathfinding, engagement, and innovation.

The programme of sessions has now been announced, with renowned speakers from the creative sector giving talks on a variety of subjects.

‘Global Leamington’ will explore the work being undertaken in the town to put Leamington on the world stage. ‘Placemaking: Building Creative Communities’ will delve into the importance of creating public spaces that promote the happiness and wellbeing of our communities.

Other talks and workshops will explore how to get into your desired creative industry, fundraising, intellectual property, and effectively utilising volunteers, with a free workshop on maximising social media for marketing by local marketing company Spaghetti Agency.

Anyone interested or working in craft, film, TV, video, radio, photography, museums, galleries, performing arts or visual arts is encouraged to apply to attend the event.

David Guilding, Arts Manager at Warwick District Council said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Spark:Ignite event for the fourth year. It offers a fantastic opportunity for us to bring together our rich and diverse creative sector to network, share, explore and celebrate the creative offering we have here in Warwick district.”

Spark:Ignite 2023 is free to attend. For the full schedule and to register visit
